trying to tow a ford fiesta
I have a 2011 Ford Fiesta automatic with push button start. I purchased this vehicle specifically to tow behind my motor home. I have a small problem and wonder if anyone else has had a similar one.
The manual tells me to place to car in neutral by touching the start/stop button but DO NOT APPLY The Brake and then shifting into neutral. Problem is, it won't shift into neutral unless I put my foot on the brake pedal. The manual tells me after it is in neutral, I push the start/stop button again but not to touch the brake. The car keeps trying to start and telling me to put my foot on the brake to start it. Ford says the manual is correct!
Seems the only way I can put the car in neutral is by starting it, shifting to neutral and then turning the car off.
Just wondering if anyone out there is towing a similar vehicle without these frustrating problems.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
